    I've made copies on DVD-R's using AnyDVD and DVDNextCopy2 and they played fine until I got a LG BD390 Blu-Ray player. The new LG shows the content as blocky and stop-start like.

    I'm thinking it was CSS?

    So, I got AnyDVDHD thinking that this might solve the issue. Issue is still there.

    I've made sure there's no packet writing going on and that the Firmware is up to date on my DVD burners.

    Had been using WinData discs without a problem. Got Sony DVD-Rs with AccuCore am still having the problem.

    Any thoughts? Should I have to get a Blu-Ray burner and make new copies of my discs?

    It's the burning, not the decrypting

    AnyDVD does not have a twit to do with how or what you burn after is processes the content.

    That symptom is a burning issue with your burning product. Contact their support for that symptom. If it was CSS you wouldn't have turned a wheel for the burning process. ;)

    It sounds to me like your Blu-Ray player just does not like to play burned disks in general. You can try other brands of blank media (Verbatim) and dirrerent burning software but I think you'll be wasting time. The fact that you got AnyDVD HD, thinking it had anything to do with anything, and are talking about CSS, indicates to me that you're in way over your head here.

    Thanks for the replies everyone!

    I've used DVD-Rs that have original content on them that I burned with Nero and they work just fine on the Blu-Ray player. Original content was TV commercials for clients (I'm a web designer) and not copies of DVDs.

    Media was the same WinData disc batch, copied from my PC. So I don't think it's the media in the LG Blu-Ray.

    Will read the posts that were linked. Going to get some Verbatims this afternoon and try copy again.

    Going to check posts on DVDNextCopy's forums on this issue as well.

    Could there be just an issue with the firmware on the LG BD390 blocking the copies?

    NO - you are not dealing with any sort of prohibition or protecion issues.

    It's something to do with the blank media vs the burning software vs your player. Try setting DVDNextcopy to output to DVD files and burning the output with Nero and see if that might work.

    You have too many variables and need to eliminate something in order to move forward.

    You have been given good advice on better blank media. The post looks semi familiar to a post over on the DNC support forum. I recall alot of this and remember stating or was stated to get better quality blank media like verbatims or TY's. Also what copy setting is being used and burn speed?

    To test your LG BD390 Blu-ray player to see if it will play all types of homemade compliant Blu-ray structures built on blank BD-5, BD-9, and BD-R do the following. Follow the EXACT instructions, and ALWAYS use + type blank media for standard definition and set it to DVD-ROM with Imgburn, when possible, before burning.

    AnyDVD HD
    Clown BD

    Put the movie only on a blank BD-R single layer (25gb) and test it on your LG BD390, if you see the movie needs compression to fit on a blank BD-R then only put part of the movie on the BD-R, don't put compression on the disk for test purposes.

    Just got Verbatim DVD-R's (Made in India) tonight and burned at 4x using DNC Standard. Set Normal for quality.

    Same result.

    Thinking TY now. Any particular type of TY?

    Tried to use ImgBurn while running AnyDVD HD.

    Here's my test results. Any insight shared would be helpful:

    DVD copy investigation

    Test 1:
    Took The Saint, which I had bought in 2002 and made an ISO and then burned Verbatim disc using ImgBurn. Disc was playable just fine.
    Initial speculation is that the original disc was single layer.

    Test 2:

    Windata copy of Twilight would not play well. Got the pixel "stop-start" issue. Copy was made with DNC Standard.

    Took that copy of Twilight and made an ISO. Then burned Iso using ImgBurn to a Verbatim disc. Got the pixel "stop-start" playback on Insignia Blu-Ray player. Played copy on PC just fine.

    Next test is to get new copy of Twilight from Redbox and make fresh ISO instead of going from WinData DVD Burn to Verbatim DVD Burn.

    Thought is that perhaps there was a problem with the original burn so the problem was just moved from one disc to another.

    Other thought is that the original was a dual layer DVD and when compressing to single-layer there was something lost or changed that made the issue arise.

    Test 3:
    Made ISO of "Little Mermaid 2" from Netflix using DVD Shrink to fit to a single layer DVD. Burned disc with ImgBurn.

    Disc plays just fine on Insignia Blu-Ray player.

    Sounds to me like you need to burn with ImgBurn more often. :D

    And I still think your Blu-Ray player is overly picky about what it can read. That pixellated stop start stuff is just cumulative player read errors.

    Also might look into a product more supported now to as the version 2 line is at its EOL since there hasn't been an update in 6 months.
